Set out to discover the Ionian and Adriatic Seas with PONANT. During a 10-day cruise leaving from VallettaLe Dumont-d’Urville will take you to Italy, Greece, Montenegro and Croatia.

Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. Throughout your journey, you will benefit from an excursion included per person per port of call, to choose from a selection offered by PONANT. During this cruise, visit the former shipyard in Aci Trezza from Taormina, watch a moreška sword dance in Korcula’s open-air theatre, or discover Croatian culinary traditions from Dubrovnik. The diversity of experiences on offer promises you intense and varied moments (to discover the full range of excursions, go to the itinerary tab).

Your ship will leave Valletta, the capital of Malta and former stronghold of the Knights of the Order of Malta and set sail towards Sicily. In Taormina, the streets will lead you to the impressive ancient theatre, where the quality of the acoustics is exceptional. And as a constant backdrop: the majestic Mount Etna! In PugliaGallipoli, meaning “beautiful town” in Greek, reveals its Hellenic origins and offers up its singular atmosphere, where life is good.

Le Dumont-d’Urville will reach Greece and you will discover Fiskardo, a refined and flowery island, a little-known destination in the Ionian archipelago. In Epirus, you will admire Parga and its fortress, built by the Normans in the 14th century, overlooking the pretty fishing port.

Your ship will then set sail towards Montenegro, for an unforgettable cruise in the Bay of Kotor. This impressive gap between two mountain ranges is home to a veritable inland lake with a magical atmosphere; the medieval city of Kotor and its many historical monuments are its jewels.

You will approach Vis, a little and little-known island, ignored by cruise itineraries. Fall under the spell of the historical heritage, which includes Roman ruins and Venetian architecture, of the oldest fishing port in the Adriatic. Then the national park of the island of Mljet, surrounded by a wildly beautiful coastline, will be the occasion for a timeless interlude in the shade of the green oaks and Aleppo pines, between lush vegetation and saltwater lakes. You will also be able to discover the mountain island of Korčula and its medieval city, where Marco Polo was born.

Finally, you will make a port of call at Korcula, a medieval city standing on a promontory and protected by fortifications, before heading for Dubrovnik, the appropriately named “pearl of the Adriatic”, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Encircled by medieval ramparts, it is a charming city, with its red-tiled roofs, its palaces, its cloisters and its fountains that will plunge you into the heart of Croatian history.
